Noncatalytic and catalytic transesterification of rape oil were studied in an ethanol medium under supercritical fluid conditions, ultrasonic effect, temperature range from 623 to 653 K, 30 MPa, and with 12: 1 and 18: 1 alcohol to oil mole ratios. An effect of heterogeneous catalysts on the reaction rate was defined. Correlation dependence between the amount of fatty acid ethyl esters in biodiesel fuel and kinematical viscosity of the reaction product was determined.
